A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
It's been two months since I finished the first book in this series and I consider that a good thing. I wasn't a really big fan of Ari and Fen in the first novel and I think that changed somewhat.
I started to enjoy Ari as a character because she was way more of a handful this time around. She was actually questioning what the heck was going on and made a point of trying to escape captivity even if it brought more harm to her.
Fen wasn't a big part of this novel, the only exception was the ending (which I loved). I don't know what I was expecting from him, but maybe distance really does make the heart grow fonder. He was much better in handling his affection for Arianna and I appreciated that.
I despise Asher. He's playing both sides and still expects Fen to trust him even though he and *mystery spoiler character's name here* made Arianna sign yet another deal in blood? I understand why he did it, but that doesn't mean I like it or that I'm on his side. The only redeeming event was his fae friend (which I can't elaborate on because spoilers).
As I've mentioned above, I loved that ending. I wasn't expecting anything remotely close to what happened and it has me invested in this series. I want to know what happens next.
The Audio Book:
Last time around I had a problem with Joel Froomkin because I couldn't stand a man narrating a book to me. I've gotten better at managing that problem. I can now stand and appreciate a man narrated audio book, but I'm still not IN LOVE with it.
